Hi All,

 

Just after a bit of guidance on configuring vServer SnapMirrors between 2 Cmode 8.2 Clusters to provide DR between 2 physical sites.

It seems that you cannot setup a vServer SnapMirror without a vServer peer relationship which you cannot setup without a cluster peer relationship.

 

So does this mean, in order to configure a vServer to vServer SnapMirror you need Intercluster LIFs to be able to communicate as well as your management vServer LIFs? Seems to be a pretty big caveat for multi-tenant designs.

 

Appreciate any info or workarounds on this topic.

(If you want to create an intercluster Vserver peer relationship, both clusters must be peered with each other.)

 

Thanks

Michael

    As per page 61 in the Data Protection Guide:

     

     

    • You must have created the cluster and Vserver peering relationship.

     

    There are no work arounds for this, for more information on managing peer relationships, see:
